New Law Banning Use of Cell Phones While Driving in Construction Zones

A new law took effect Saturday, October 1st that bans Wisconsin drivers from talking on their cell phones in construction zones.  

Drivers will still be able to talk on the phone if they use hands-free devices. But, if you're caught holding a phone to your ear, you'll get a ticket and face fines of up to $178.

The Wisconsin DOT said there have been nearly 10,000 crashes in construction zones from 2011 - 2015.

"Most of the injuries and deaths occurring in construction zones are actually motorists, people driving through those areas, so that's equally as important as protecting the workers out there," Capt. Steve Krueger of the Wisconsin State Patrol said.

Texting while driving is already banned in Wisconsin.

The new construction zone law goes into effect Saturday.
